Empty Throne [OOC]
Cynthia Voight better known in the shadows as the Archmage, or the Baroness has died.  Her web of influence has shaped the rules of the city for decades.  With her death all the previously cautious factions and sects see their chance to be the new de facto ruler of the city.

Looking for 3-5 for urban shadows,  left the city vague for now in case anyone came up with something cool

I'd like to join this for sure.

For playbooks, I'm thinking Fae, Wizard, or Tainted.  Maybe Oracle.

Looking forward to it!

Hi there. *waves*

I'm tempted by the Veteran, Tainted, and Wolf.

Would have to see the playbooks, but it -sounds- interesting!

Oracle and Specter both look quite tempting!

So we got

Eugene- Fae, Wizard, Tainted, Oracle
Cardboard Square- Oracle and Specter
Briar- Veteran Tainted Wolf

looks like not too much overlap if we want to start narrowing it down

Cool!  Since no one wanted my top two, I can narrow to those. Wizard or Fae. Probably Fae.

EDIT: Yeah, I decided. Definitely Fae. I will shortly post the (partially) completed playbook here, I think.

Definitely going Oracle. Will build tomorrow. Could use more information on 'factions' in general, though. Also, will this be a largely PvP game, or PvE (for lack of better terms?)

Did Winter leave the group? They were to be the MC for this game.

I thought I saw a post about this, but it's gone.

If they have left, would anyone else be interested in stepping in as MC?

They did, as far as I can tell, leave.

Well, I'd be willing to step in as MC in the future (say, like February or March), but right now I don't have time to MC properly, sadly.

If this group is still lively then, I'd consider running Urban Shadows and/or Pigsmoke, though!
